Too harsh. The site advertises this product as a cpap cleaner but reading the bottle and its instructions its intended for hard surfaces and is corrosive.

CXC Notes: Hello, We're not sure why you would give a disinfectant product a 1 star review because it is strong and does what it says on the bottle which is specifically to disinfect and clean medical equipment, heat sensitive instruments, and tubing. The back of the bottle also provides information on using Control III with softer items like fabrics and laundry. Control III has been used in hospitals, home care situations and by CPAP users for years; but it is concentrated so it needs to be diluted before use as indicated on the instructions. We do provide the complete bottle label and instructions on our website, in the references section on the product pages, for your review as well. Sleep well!
Product is excellent. Shipping and delivery were fast. Highly reccomend!

An extra sterilizing precaution
This product actually popped up on my Facebook page with another company so I decided to check it out. Then I did some price comparisons and cpapXchange.com had by far the best price. It seemed too good to be true, but I got the product promptly and I am using it.

I have no way of measuring actual effectiveness, but the label claims, reviews and price from this seller are very good.

I have been using this product for 6 years to sanitize some of my CPAP equipment. I didn't do any scientific tests to see if it really works but I have not had any issues like mold or affecting parts like the mask cushion. I'll keep using it since I don't like the smell of vinegar!

Couldn't be better
I bought a small bottle of Control III for less than $5, they didn't charge me any shipping, which may have been a special rather than regular operating procedure, but who cares, the package went from New Hampshire to California in 3 days. I really don't see how it could have been better.

It does the job!
I’ve been on a real journey regarding the use of CPAP! Spent the first few weeks working to get used to wearing a mask at night, and fairly quickly became accustomed to it. Shortly thereafter, I began to experience feeling ill, and went thru several rounds of antibiotics, and I experimented with various humidity settings. Bought a SoClean unit and a bottle of the Control III concentrate, and began a daily regiment using both products. Every morning after waking, I empty the water reseviour from the night before, I add about a capful of Control III and fill the reseviour with hot tap water. I add my silicon face mask and 90 degree plastic joint to the solution, give it a vigorous shake, and let it sit for about a half hour. Then, I take each piece, one at a time from the solution, and rinse them thoroughly with very warm tap water, let them dry for about a hour, and drop everything into the SoClean unit. This method, while a bit tedious, has allowed me to stay “illness free” for almost four months now, and I feel very good. The Control III and SoClean products are top-notch, and are very effective!

Have had my CPAP for over 6 years. I've been cleaning it periodically with soapy water. Never felt that I was doing the best job. I now feel that my equipment is disinfected and my health is protected. Does leave a medicinal smell, but used PurSleep Vapor Clear from this site and it did the trick.

Works very well
Does a good job. Just followed the directions and it was very easy to use. I hope this product is not discontinued ever.

Works well; Documentation could be better
I use a TAP PAP, and my nose was getting red and a bit crusty where the nasal pillows rested on my nostrils. I figured it was probably some bacterial thing and I needed better cleaning, so I ordered some of this disinfectant. It worked beautifully.
The solution is concentrated: it only takes about 1-1/2 teaspoons and a quart of water to make a dunking solution that will last for two weeks (after which you dump it and make a new batch). I dunk my TAP PAP in it each morning for 10 minutes, rinse it in warm water and set it on a clean towel to dry, and no more skin irritation.
The stuff seems to be intended for medical laboratory use, based on the directions. They talked about testing the solution's strength with test strips (not included, nor indeed even described in any detail), and ensuring a minimum strength of 1000ppm (parts per million); the latter begging the question: 1000 WHAT ppm? Then they say to run hot water for 3 minutes before rinsing the stuff off (flushing any bacteria out of the plumbing, I assume). Hey, we're in the middle of a drought, here! Anyway, I'm not too worried about super-sterility; I'm just putting the appliance in my mouth and against my nose, not performing surgery with it. Plus which, the TAP PAP will deform if you hold it under hot tap water for more than a few seconds. For me, a quick rinse with warm water is just fine.
So 5 stars for performance, minus one star for mediocre directions.

Control III Cleaning Solution & Disinfectant
Easy cleaning and disinfectant! Should have purchased this a long time ago!

This product is wonderful! I was hesitate to use it on my pillows after reading the bottle, but if you follow the diluting instructions, it works just fine. My pillows and cushion did not dry out, came out clean and disinfected and the product left absolutely no odor. I soaked my hoses in the solution for ten minutes, as directed, and they came out nice and refreshed. It was like having new equipment!!
